Photography of a Cowgirl

 
 
I will be linking to some of the photography sites throughout the upcoming weeks!

We just celebrated my daughter's tenth birthday.  I was so busy entertaining children and taking pictures of everyone else, that I didn't get any of the birthday girl!  The day after her birthday, we went back to the Fall Festival and had fun, just the two of us, taking these shots!  Yes, I know we all think our own children are beautiful, and I am no exception!  As lovely as I think she is, Ashlyn is a million more times beautiful on the inside!  She has a sweet, sweet heart.  She is actually very quiet and a bit shy.  I love the silly shots of her, because she is so full of adventure and life!  I will cherish these always!
  She loves two things...horses and her American Girl.  I captured my favorite big girl doing the things she loves the most!

Of course you all know I am not a professional photographer.  But, the one thing I have learned is that lighting is everything!  I am also acutely aware of the environment; what things are in the background that can make a break a shot!  I think props can be great, if they are used naturally. 

I'll be back soon with some shots from her party!



Thank ya'll for stopping by!

Christi, Ashlyn is a beautiful young girl. These cowgirl shots are fabulous. What a wonderful memory of her 10th birthday. Love the straw between the teeth. Thanks for sharing the joy! ~ Sarah

What a beautiful young girl you have.
This post brings back memories of my daughter and her American Girl doll-Kit. Oh the joy of watching our daughters grow up. Mine is 18 now and off at college studying music. I miss her sitting at the piano playing and singing.

I think your daughter is just sweet and you did a great job photographing her. I love her cowgirl hat, the sign and the doll. They grow up way too fast so cherish these beautiful moments. Blessings, Pamela

Christie said...

She is beautiful! And the inner beauty is seen in her eyes. You are blessed.
I love your shots!
What type of camera do you use...I'm on a search..doing my homework..
A bit older,

Christie, these pictures of your daughter are so adorable! She's a beauty! I loved my American Girl doll too when I was ten...she and I had the best of times together. :)

Looking forward to pictures of the party!

Hugs,
Gail

P.S. Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog about the pumpkins! :)

Oh Christie, she is just so beautiful and you can tell that the beauty truly does come from the inside out...just like her mama! :-) What a special time you must have had together and I can't wait to see some of the shots from her party!

She's just adorable, so great that you have those photos!

Christie, these photos are wonderful. I'll bet her grandma Mary Ann is beside herself having some girls in the family after all boys.

Kelly said...

She really is pretty! I have a 10 yr old son too! I'm looking forward to seeing the party pics.

Christie, It was to your advantage that you didn't get shots of your DARLING daughter at her party because these are sensational! She is such a cutie. LOVE the cowgirl outfit and the fun attitude. You are a wonderful mom, Christie! Your are rasing lovely children!

what a beauty.....i can see her soul through her eyes and she is every bit as beautiful as you said.....love her more than you think possible...she will grow up way too soon !

Tardevil said...

Nice pictures! Looks like a professional made them. Like the red/white checked shirt, also. There is a new antique mall open up I-77 Exit 36 (take a right headed north) called LKN Antique Mall, and one of the booth has a collection of old (I'm assuming plastic) horses, in case you're interested for Christmas.
